Mr SCULLIN - The honorable member was good enough to intimate to me that he intended to ask this question. On each side of the entrance to Parliament House is a stone left for inscription with the names of those closely associated with its opening. I understand that the proposal of the last Government was that the names of the Duke of York. the then Governor-General, and the then Prime Minister should be inscribed on the stones. No money, however, has been provided on the Estimates for this purpose by either the last or the present Administration. The Government has considered the matter, and has decided that when the stonesare inscribed the name of the late Mr. Stewart will be put on one of them, as he turned the first sod for the foundation of Parliament House.
